FBJET III Type

WATER JET CUTTING CENTRE TYPE FBJET III

LDSA, French leader, Designer and Manufacturer of Water Jet Cutting Centre, presents its new generation of table type “FBJET III” 5 axis. Seamless and fully integrated concept using all the advanced techniques known to date.

Our Model has a remote arm and unique configuration for increased accessibility!

The assembly is driven by a latest generation CNC FANUC (No.1 Global) allowing ease of use and offering a previously unequalled level of Reliability and Precision. The very high pressure water supply (4000B – 6200B) is supplied by a BFT pump (European No. 1) “OEM” version, fully integrated into the machine frame.

The Human/Machine interface is customizable, like the CNC, it is fully programmed internally by our Design Office, and managed under Windows 7 PRO. The system is intended to operate autonomously.

The numerous sensors allow control and remote control of the system via a computer network and via the internet.

The equipment is very compact and uses only high quality mechanical and electrical components for increased reliability.

CHARACTERISTICS 5 AXES ACTIVE

Thanks to the new FBJET III 5X ACTIVE (2.5D) series of cutting tables, water jet cutting technology can now extend its range of applications and achieve previously unattainable performance levels.

The main feature of the FBJET III 5X ACTIVE is the addition of two rotary cutting head movements to the 3 traditional Cartesian axes.

The System allows you to use the flatness probe, in 3 axes AND in 5 Axes (Chamfer cutting for example).

The 5 X/Y/Z/A/C axes are digitised and simultaneous. (A and C serve head rotation and inclination).

In this way, all 2.5D cuts are possible (chamfers, taper holes…), the A axis is limited to 45° electronically for safety reasons (+/- 90° possible). This guarantees a high level of precision and also allows the use of the 2D system with the same performance and the same costs as a traditional 3-axis machine.

Finally, the use of the 5 axes allows for automatic angle compensation and perfect geometry, at higher speeds than with a 3-axis model.
